Scott Plumbing knows that slab leaks are dangerous and can cause serious damage to your home. However, many people believe that a slab leak is not a cause for concern.
With the water draining underneath their home, they feel like they don’t have to deal with flooding inside or mold and mildew growing in their living area. Unfortunately, as the water drains away around the foundation, it takes away part of the dirt that supports the home.
Serious structural damage can result, and that’s why slab leaks need to be treated as soon as possible.
How to Prevent Slab Leaks
Slab leaks occur in a location of the home that are in the foundation and often hidden. Because these slab leaks are hidden, the leaks can go on for weeks without the knowledge of the property owner. This can cause a lot of damage to the plumbing in a property, it can affect the sanitation of a home, and cause water bills to soar.
